I’ll admit it: now that I’m on my second iPad, I’m never going back. Combine that with LTE tethering, and my ministry travel for April was a breeze.
I was in Chicago, Washington DC, and Detroit for 2.5 weeks during April with the need to work on the road the entire stretch. Sure I had wifi sometimes, but one hotel was going to be a $20 extra daily fee (the nicer places always get you!), and the Missio Alliance conference where I was representing Great Commission Ministries had public wifi for 800 attendees all at once. Eesh: good luck connecting or getting much throughput. Not that this is unusual: at the Verge Conference or Exponential or others, I’ve usually found the available wifi to be iffy at best.

Then finally address the card and mail it…only to find out that the mail has already come for the day from my mailbox and it will just sit in there until tomorrow when it gets picked up at 4pm. And thus won’t make it to my friend in time.
Photography has been around for nearly 200 years, with the first photo taken in 1826 and the first color photo in 1861. And there have been many changes along the way: camera’s have gotten better, less expensive and ultimately digital.
The explosion of mobile cameras has led to a drastic increase in the amounts of photos taken…but has also brought forth complains from ‘real’ photographers that the art of taking a good picture isn’t appreciated anymore.

I came across an old blog post by David Murray on the 10 Digital Commandments. They were the ten most important takeaways from the book Digital Leader by Erik Qualman.
David provides full quotes and page numbers to each of these in his blog post, but for the most part they’re pretty self explanatory:
The battle rages on.
It’s like watching a wrestling match as Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android mobile platforms battle it out.

Take a look at these numbers and tell me what you think:
As silly as it may sound, the results are absolutely amazing.
Let me provide with some mood music to go along with these Instagram photos:
